Modern Tennis Psychology: Nonlinear and Quantum
Today it is well known that disembodied cognition is a myth, albeit one that has had profound influence in Western science since Rene Descartes and others gave it credence during the Scientific Revolution. In fact, the mind-body separation had much more to do with explanation of method than with explanation of the mind and cognition, yet it is with respect to the latter that its impact is most widely felt. We find it to be an unsustainable assumption in the realm of crowd behavior.Mental intention is (almost immediately) followed by a physical action, that is, a human or animal movement [Sch07]. In animals, this physical action would be jumping, running, flying, swimming, biting or grabbing. In humans, it can be talking, walking, driving, or kicking, etc. Mathematical description of human/animal movement in terms of the corresponding neuro-musculo-skeletal equations of motion, for the purpose of prediction and control, is formulated within the realm of biodynamics (see [II06a, II06b, II06c]).
In this section we will focus on intelligence and problem solving.
